We all know what upgrades mean. Installation…Configuration…Patching…Testing…Deployment…Change approvals…Meetings…Long hours…Perhaps pulling an “overnighter” but hopefully never having to enact the dreaded “Backout Plan”.
Or…. that stuff can “just happen” without you worrying about it at all!
I logged on to my Exadata Cloud Express database on the weekend, and lo and behold, it is not Oracle Database 12c anymore. It is 12c Release 2 !
A look back through my email Inbox, and I saw that I had indeed been notified of the upcoming upgrade some time ago, but I was too lazy to pay attention to it
Now that’s the kind of upgrade I like !
